MPPA students must successfully complete two required prerequisites prior to starting the program: government/political science and microeconomics. Completion of the statistics prerequisite is recommended.
ATTENTION: We recently changed our statistics prerequisite from required to recommended.
Sequencing courses is important to a student's success. Our course sequencing page contains two tables showing typical schedules recommended for MPPA students.
Students have 7 years to complete the MPPA.
